Falcon Vacuum Pumps and Systems, a leading manufacturer, retailer, and exporter of a wide range of vacuum pumps, is showcasing its dry vacuum pumps for various applications in the offset printing industry at Stand A31 in Hall 1. Falcon designs its pumps at its specialized casting unit

The dry pumps available on display are used in paper feeding for sheetfed offset press, and other applications include paper packaging machines, food packaging machines, ceramic printing, and grain processing. Falcon has recently developed a bigger compressor for the 8-color Heidelberg 28×40-inch CD series. It has also installed a new VMC (Vertical Machining Center) this month only to increase its production capacity. 

Amarpreet Singh, managing director of Falcon, says, “PrintPack 2022 is going great for the exhibitors and for the visitors we have met yet. Indeed, during the pandemic, the commercial printing industry faced many challenges, but now they are excited about the market’s comeback. We have finalized a few deals and also have some more in the pipeline to be finalized.”

“Since January 2022, we have installed 15 vacuum compressor pumps on 4-color, 6-color, 8-color Heidelberg presses across India in various places. In this financial year, we are planning for 50 installations of dry vacuum pumps. In India, the demand for the parts of pumps is increasing, and customers are looking for the replacement of German parts because they are costly for them. So, here we play a vital role for the Indian customer by delivering the parts at a reasonable price.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
